Patek Philippe is a well-known luxury watch brand that has traditionally been associated with classic, dressy watches. However, the new Calatrava 6007G is anything but classic. It features a 40mm case, 22mm lug width, and a stamped carbon fiber weave dial. The watch also comes on a black calfskin strap with a carbon fiber weave pattern.
Some people may be disappointed with the lack of a hand-guilloche dial and the carbon fiber strap. However, I think Patek Philippe is trying to appeal to a younger, more casual audience with this watch. The 6007G is still a well-made watch with a high-quality movement. It's just a different kind of Patek Philippe watch.
The 6007G is powered by the Caliber 26-330 S C, which features a LIGA-formed seconds wheel. This is a high-tech process that creates long, fine-toothed gears that are smoother and more efficient than traditional gears. The movement also has a hacking seconds function, which allows the second hand to be stopped when setting the time.
The 6007G is available in three colors: yellow, red, and light blue. It is priced at $37,850 USD.
Whether or not you like the 6007G is a matter of personal taste. However, I think it's an interesting watch that shows that Patek Philippe is willing to experiment with new designs. I'm curious to see what other new and innovative watches Patek Philippe will release in the future.
Here are some additional details about the 6007G:
- The case is made of white gold.
- The dial is black with a carbon fiber weave pattern.
- The hands and hour markers are made of white gold and filled with luminous material.
- The strap is black calfskin with a carbon fiber weave pattern.
- The movement is the Caliber 26-330 S C.
- The power reserve is 35-45 hours.
- The watch is water resistant to 30 meters.
